My 2014 Sports Racer S.  Only Chrome Orange Evora made for UK in 2014.  Although the V5 says Sports Racer it was a factory special order with all the packs and plain black leather interior.

It has silver badges and the alcantara trim.  I have the Lotus certificate confirming the build details and how many of what Evoras from 2014 and 2015 there were.

So really the only distinguishing SR part is the interior trim, plus of course the certificate. 

Nope! The final run out specials had no Alcantara but full leather trim. In fact leather in places where the Alcantara trimmed cars had just plastic.

2014 S IPS in Daytona Blue with the Lotus titanium motorsports exhaust. 

(Apparently the care was originally used by Martin Donelley in his role as a Lotus Ambassador)

I can't recall, Aimee did tell me but it didn't sink in as I was too excited at the thought of owing a Daytona Blue one :), it has twin tailpipes if that helps.  It does not have a valve, and is louder than regular ones.

 

Edit to add, I think its this one but could be wrong.:

LIGHTWEIGHT LEVEL 1 SPORTS EXHAUST STAINLESS STEEL

With Blue Tipped Titanium

Thanks. That's the same as fitted to the GTE cars :)

I'm glad I have an ultra rare (1 of 1) MY12 Evora S the just pre-dates the SR and has a truly unique paint job :harhar:

Sport Racer spec, Evora S, looks a nice car and at a good price with low mileage.    https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/evora/lotus-evora-s-2-2/8732319

I think Mr Bravo may have the most unique almost a sports racer, 1 of 1 a full year before Lotus released their version. Internally upgraded appearance as well as external paintwork. 

 

So 'just' an S then :rtfm:

:huh:

Hey??? 

That literally has no Sport Racer unique components at all. This thread has become a bit farcical. 

An Evora Sport Sport Racer is defined by the following:

Exterior - "Black Pack" (Roof, sills, mirrors, front lower bumper, rear diffuser and badges painted gloss black) and Gloss Black 19"/20" wheels (18"/19" for Chinese Market) and fog & reverse lamp surrounds with dealer fit Union flag on 'A' Panels 

Interior - Unique black Suedetex & Leather dash and door trims with Sport Premium Leather Seats in Black or Red. Black brightwork used on N/A as well as S plus the metal gear knob (which later became standard). 

All with Tech pack plus N/A came with Sports pack as standard. 

If your Evora didn't have any of these then it isn't a Sports Racer. Even if your V5 somehow states that, it is obviously a clerical error! I'm sure a temp simply copied a pasted a number of them to save time or possibly didn't understand the model. 

If you look back at the history of the spec, it was originally touted as the "Carbon Concept" by Mansory in 2010, then copied for a couple of cars by Alicia Keys and then Paul/Johnny's Evora in 2011 before becoming a special edition - "Sports Racer" in 2012/13.

Pete.
